A Lingering Fall

It is December 1 in East Tennessee and today it was warm enough to sit on the front porch without a jacket. I guess it is the lack of freezing weather which keeps the fall colors hanging around.

Has anyone else noticed that the Bradford pear trees, usually one of the first to show fall colors, are still changing?

It’s nice to have color….especially with this rainy week.
